Place Vendome … a particular place to visit in Paris, where time seems to stand still. Created during the reign of Louis XIV in the 17th century, it has always been a great place for luxury and aristocracy. As a symbol, it is here that the decapitated heads of the French Revolution were showed with pride. It is also here that was proclaimed from the balcony of what is now the Ministry of Justice, the first French republic
You will notice when you arrive the uniqueness of the place. Way point, the square is paved in a homogeneous way and the pedestrian / car separation is symbolized by discreet bollards. All around are beautiful mansions, all recognized as historic monuments, which were the residences of the French nobility. Today, all buildings are owned by traders or large luxury hotels, such as the prestigious Ritz you will see at number 15. For those who wish (and can afford it …), know that the bar of the Palace is open to all and can be a very pleasant experience.
Finally, make a complete tour of the place and his luxuries shops (do not look too closely at the prices shown …) and pay attention to architectural details specific to each building. Add to that the beautiful street lights and you will understand why this place is considered as one of the most luxurious places in the world. A real treasure.
